Hey, I thought I'd try to be a bit more useful around here, I can't really add much to discussions about site buying/selling since I don't do it but I enjoy posting on the forum due to the high level of posting that goes on here and want to do more than occasionally dip into 'foo' threads, as much fun as that is.
So, I thought I'd try to help people who are completely new to things like PPC since I've been doing that for years and driving traffic to websites is quite a common problem. I'd write an article about it but frankly it would be easier to just link to one already written by someone else so I thought it would be more useful to directly answer questions. Anything I get asked that I don't know the answer to I probably need to know, so I'll get something from this too.
I've been using PPC for a number of years and have worked out strategies that I feel work and are cost effective (and also ways of using PPC to do very cheap market research). I've never taken the "Google AdWords Certification Program" for the simple reason that I don't meet the $10k minimum spend per quarter that you need to qualify for it, I'm too good at keeping my client's costs down
Feel free to PM me too.
